Gender-based violence

Gender-based violence against women and girls is a human rights violation, which affects the lives of millions of women and girls worldwide. When acts of violence are committed against women and girls because of their gender, society as a whole loses. Because equality, lasting peace and security for all cannot be achieved until women are able to live free from violence and have their basic human rights respected.

The Anglophone Crisis and Violence Against Women And Girls

In Cameroon, like in most countries across the globe, violence against women and girls is a preoccupying reality and the Anglophone crisis has made it worst. Women and girls have been the main targets of sexual violence during the conflict that has caused mass displacement and harm in Cameroon and with the onset of COVID-19 women and girls became more vulnerable to GBV within the 2 affected regions. The crises has caused large-scale damage, spurred a humanitarian crisis, and exacerbated existing social tensions. This has exposed women and girls to a lot of risks which tender them vulnerable to men and the society because they lack a source of livelihood to support themselves and their family.

Support Groups

Formation of support groups for GBV survivors helps them to work together to generate their own income and become financially independent, thereby providing a means livelihood themselves and their family.

Center Of Attraction

The Bamenda traditional wear which production began just within this second phase of the project has brought more attention to the Center and is currently among one of the best-selling products produced at the Training Centre.
